  1. I realize this recipe is quite old…but if you’re monitoring it I have a question. I have a 50/50 blend of flax/chia. How do you think I could use this and what proportions should I use? I’d rather not buy separate items again. Thank you!

    1. Hi! Try making a flax egg using the blend (3 tablespoons of the blend and 3 tablespoons of water and let sit for 5 mins or so. The mixture should thicken.). Then use this mixture as your flax egg. You could also add another two tablespoons of the blend when the recipe calls for chia seeds. This hasn’t been officially tested, but would be a good place to start. Enjoy :)
